Since coming back from Japan, I have a new standard for ramenand one of the closest I’ve gotten to that delicious thick rich pork broth was when I went to this franchise located in The Galleries Victoria (same level as everyone’s favourite bookstore Kinokuniya- conveniently along the monorail line!).
Although they have an extensive ramen menu there is only a few types of ramen I particularly come for:
- my number one choice is the Tonkotsu Ramen only available after 2pm (I wish someone told me, I found out the hard way) and I think there are only 15 bowls made a day. The first time I had it it was purely by luck, it was around 2:15pm and I was surprised that they even had any more at that time, little did I know that it had only been released 15 minutes ago! My sister and I both ordered a bowl and the waitress came back to tell us that there was only one bowl left, my sister offered it to me and I was like “are you sure?” and when she nodded I quickly accepted, don’t have to ask me twice!
- Aburi chashu-men or Chashu-men ($13.00) the soup isn’t as great but still very tasty and the pork is soooooo yummy!
Tempura salmon roll to start with: I’ve never had sushi like this before, it was delicious with a slightly crispy texture. Pickled ginger too- mmmmmmmm
And what did I think of it? Well a picture is worth a thousand words:
